Many people have structural problems with their feet that affect their function. This can cause their feet to hurt every day. Foot pain can be caused by a variety of factors which include poor foot mechanics, wearing poor footwear, medical conditions such as diabetes, and even overuse due to repetitive activities such as running. Custom orthotics will help you get back on your feet without any discomfort.
Why custom orthotics work better than generic?
Custom orthotics, also known as shoe inserts or arch supports, are designed to support the problem areas in your feet that cause discomfort and affect the function of the foot. They can help compensate for joint deformities, lift an arch that is falling or even relieve heel pain due to arthritis or bone deformities. Custom orthotics from Edgar Family Chiropractic in Burlington are made specifically for your foot, unlike generic, mass-produced shoe inserts that are sold over the counter or online. They are designed to match the contours and size of your feet and provide support exactly where you need it.
Here are a few of the benefits that they provide:
Custom orthotics from our Burlington clinic are much more effective than mass-produced, prefabricated foot orthotics sold at drugstores, online and shopping malls. This is due to the fact that they are made to your exact specifications, taking into account your particular medical condition and complete measurements of your feet. Prefabricated insoles are made to match your shoe size but may not fit your feet to offer the exact relief and correction you require.
It corrects foot abnormalities
While generic shoe inserts provide extra padding to make the shoes feel more comfortable, they cannot correct foot abnormalities. Custom orthotics can correct abnormalities such as high arches, supination/pronation and collapsed arches. Custom orthotics provide greater balance to both feet. This is important because feet are the base to the rest of the biomechanical chain of the body. If the feet are not functioning properly then problems may arise in the knees, hips and low back.
Relieves Pain and Prevents Injury
If your feet are always hurting, you should consider having your feet assessed by a chiropractor or a foot specialist. They will assess you and recommend the best course of action. Custom foot orthotics can prevent injury and also prevent the feet from developing ulcers, calluses, and corns.
Custom Orthotics Can Enhance Your Sports Performance
Foot abnormalities can affect your performance if you are an athlete. It’s important to remember that it’s not just about running or walking. Your golf stance, your ability to pitch from the mound, or your weekend cycling adventure may all be affected by foot pain. Pain and discomfort will make it difficult to perform at your best in sports. Your foot, knee, and body will be well-aligned, relaxed, and pain-free with custom foot orthotics from our Burlington clinic. They help you to enhance your success in sports and other activities while still reducing your risk of injury.
